RUN-UP OF RANDOM WAVES ON GENTLE SLOPES

Hajime Mase, Yuichi Iwagaki

Abstract


This paper investigates the following characteristics of run-up of random waves on gentle slopes experimentally: (1) the run-up wave energy spectrum, (2) the ratio of the number of run-up waves to that of incident waves, (3) the relationship between the representative run-up height, the deep-water wave steepness and the beach slope, (4) the run length of run-up heights, and (5) the effect of wave grouping on representative run-up heights. Main results are summarized in the chapter of conclusions.

Keywords
